New Boat to Vung Tau

After being beset by crashes and fires, the hydrofoils from Ho Chi Minh City to Vung Tau have received an upgrade courtesy of one of the operators, Green Lines.


The new catamarans cost about US$1 million each and run on German-built engines. The journey time to Vung Tau is still one hour and 15 minutes, while the price per adult is VND250,000. However, most important is the safety factor. Departing three times a day during the week, and four times a day at weekends, you can rely on these boats to get you to your destination in one piece — the previous vessels are well over 40 years old.


The new service will commence on Jun. 15, 2016.
